finding Monday

4efef7f7e3503cced3dad81b5a0c3e65In quiet reflection today, I wanted to transport myself back to the Holy Land (Japan, headquarters)  if only one could simply snap one’s fingers and voila.. we would be standing where we wanted to be.

Wanting, wishing, does not make it so.  I am where I am, thousands of miles away, different continent, time zone and season.

On my mind this morning, is Rev. Toyomi Hirayama, he was the minister who did the translations for me when I met with Rev. Mitsuo Michishita.  Sometimes when we are living a moment we don’t realize just how much that space in time will actually impact our everyday until months later.

Rev. Ise Kouji who I only met during my last visit there, was so kind so thoughtful, always a big smile.Unable to speak English, he still conveyed happiness at sharing and exchanging time with the English visitor.

The minister there from Argentina, Sensi Arthuro Higashigata, it was the same, so friendly and outgoing.  We came from all over to attend the celebrations and lectures.  The actual physical time was short .. but the learning, and discovery of self, is ongoing.

sunshine and flowersFaith will shine through, even the darkest of times, Nature will go on with her infinite art forms, and in quiet meditation, I can be “home”

Pl Precept # 11  Always be with God

PL Precept #3  God appears through One’s Self.

Thank you for sharing this quiet time with me, love is pure and unconditional, when we LIVE IN PERFECT LIBERTY   PL Precept #21

Kahlil Gibran

In this little treasure of a book I found yesterday, is a quote .. I had not seen this one before from one of Kahlil Gibran’s writings;.

You pray in your distress and in your need;  would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance… Kahlil Gibran

It is said that one can’t teach an old dog new tricks.  I have resisted changing to this new format on WordPress for ages.  My PC died right.  I had to get a new tower, hard drive etc. For some reason, all my bookmarks are gone, Boo hoo.  Big girls do cry.

p1000221

Phew… I found a new way to get my pictures from my camera into this new set up. See good things come out of change.  One has to believe everything will be alright. Thank goodness I didn’t have to hold my breath for too long.

Everything is OK now.  I can safely put myself to bed, and know I’ll sleep =^_^=

PL Precept # 5 One’s self is lost by being emotional

PL Precept # 18  Each moment is a turning point.

Start tomorrow with a big smile, and the eagerness of a child for all the discoveries that will come your way.

Had to get a closer look.  Around the block we drove, so I could really see t his entrance way to a church we saw along the way

p1000521Nice colours used in the stained glass…I like the simplicity of it.

——————————————————————————————————————————————-

p1000532

This entrance was hidden, but I was determined to get  a closer look.  the building appealed to me, we are trying to get more information on it.  Hwy 3, NY State going towards Watertown.  It is not always easy getting the real estate people to call us back…

p1000533

Some of you are really good at search and find, this is the real estate agent of note.. there was another sign, but it was long over grown with vegetation.

p1000530

OK so it isn’t everyone’s idea of “turn-key”   and it doesn’t have the greatest “curb appeal”  To each his/her own, right.

p1000529

I see a ton of possibility, AND it sets my mind to “dreaming” of what was, and what could be…

p1000528

Never give up on your dreams.  always look for the “something” that appeals to you.  It isn’t about what others may want, it is what “speaks to you”

PL Precept #15   All is a Mirror

PL Precept # 7   Everything exists in Relativity

ps. I was feeling rather sluggish with the weather today, happy, but draggin.. then I started to work on this blog, sharing with you,  I was pulling out my pictures of this latest “find” of mine.  I couldn’t help it, my heart took wings, a smile as broad as my face plastered itself across my “pus”  this building makes me smile, what can I say, the old weathered wood, the placement of the windows on the second story, watching out on the busy hwy.

The building was at an intersection, the sign was really too faded to read, but we thought we saw the word mini.. could have been a convenience store.  Certainly there was ample parking.  Yeah life is good. =^_^=

Blessings of the day to everyone… May you find peace and happiness, and your smile shine like a beacon of light for all who meet up with you today.

harmony within ourselves

IMG_1136

A student once said to me, “you tell me that happiness begins with me,  intellectually I agree, but the reality is I don’t know how to begin”.  It is easy to talk about the Precepts and Principles of PL,( Perfect Liberty), they are all so “simple” when stated, but they are not as easily followed as one would imagine,  When someone says relax, we just can’t flick a switch and our bodies will relax.

Like the shadows on the fence the “art” of the moment, is there and if we pause in our day, we will see it, return in another half hour, that moment and play of shadows will no longer be there,.

Think on the number of times, your friend, mate,spouse, child, asks you for something, and you have replied with “just a second,” “wait, I’m busy” or I can’t right now, maybe later.  We all do it, it is so easy to simply excuse ourselves from the moment because we are busy, mentally in another space.

Sometimes, the moment passes, and there is no repercussion, it simply gets lost.  Other times, it could have been a  life changing moment.  We will never know, we let it pass, we made a choice, and come what may, we had a part in that “moment” in time.

in prayer

When we make time in our lives for prayer, we are making time for GOD/TAO/Nature/Divine within ourselves.  To understand and learn more about ourselves, we have to spend time with our “selves”  In PL (Perfect Liberty) we are always available to “listen” and to help YOU sort out the complicated challenges that come your way.  It really happens to everyone, not just you, you are never alone, although at times, it might feel that you are.

PL Precept # 1  – Life is Art

Art doesn’t just happen, everyday we live is an expression of our creativity.  Our TRUST and FAITH in GOD is what will see us through troubled times.

in 2013 the #6 lesson was – A change of Heart can turn the Tide –  No matter what the situation you can’t change others.  The only thing you have control over is how you accept things, and deal with them.

PL Precept # 19

Each moment is a turning point

a leap of faith

DSC00200

There is such beauty and grace

when a horse and rider

take flight and together

mount the challenge

and conquer the moment

DSC00204

the moment didn’t just happen

the rider and the horse

trained and trained

both were ready for the challenge

they both faced

and when the time came

they flew as one

that moment shared

DSC00205

that bond, that connection

once forged

is like the nature that surrounds us

it will flow and ebb

but it will never end

faith,

when one believes

new experiences

always open up

begin each day with faith

that all your experiences in life

will carry you through

whatever comes your way
